Liberation of Minsk Tue, 30 October 2012 20:22
My scenario the Liberation of Minsk now has a three star rating with over 100 reviews!

The mission is a historical set up and focuses on the battles between Rotmistrov's 5th Guards Army and Kampfgruppe von Saucken that were part of Operation Bagration, the great Soviet 1944 summer offensive.

Congrats Jokull!

It's one of the SFTF scenarios that we have bookmarked to play it as soon as possible.

Thanks for your efforts!

I remember playing that one this year, but not 10x. Once I got my win on both sides, I went to the next scenario.

I don't see anything really wrong with it. Two lakes should block LOS in case you want to hide a wounded unit in the corner, but that's an unlikely move anyway. Are there 25 Russian armor figures in the East Pack?

It does represent the big battles on the Eastern Front; having lots of units and 8 medals. People played 300x, good balance (46%), no commissar, no Blitz rules. I don't like being backed up against the baseline, like in Rzhev and some others. Overall, I'd say it's a good scenario if someone's looking to put together an Eastern-themed tournament, so I'll upgrade to 3 stars too.

It didn't have a French title in my spreadsheet, so I'd suggest using the editor to create a French page of rules. Shouldn't be too hard. I put some suggestions on my wikispaces page.

I wrote in anniversary wish list thread (not a serious thread - Zombie '44? puh-lease) that I'd like to see a board expansion to make some 11 deep scenarios (like Operation Market Garden). Thinking now it would work well with big East Front battles like this one, so Russians don't start on the baseline.

Are the Soviet command rules in effect?

No,

it is 1944 the Soviet Command rules are not in effect.

But they must press on and fast if not to loose units as there is nowhere to retreat.

It is part of Operation Bagration - an interesting read, if you look at it.
